Legendary Estonian plane blown to bits in new Bond film ({{commentsTotal}})

According to ETV's investigative program “Pealtnägija”, Estonia has a surprising connection to the new Bond film “Spectre”. Namely, the plane the world famous spy flies in one of the action scenes, used to belong to Skydive Estonia, an Estonian skydiving club.

The Britten Norman Islander BN-2A-26, nicknamed Brita, was sold from Estonia to Scotland in 2012 and was used to shoot the scenes in the Alps last winter.

Brita was one of reportedly eight Islander aircraft used in filming the latest Bond blockbuster.

Since 2006, Brita was the launch pad for several high-flying Estonia skydiving novices, including MEP Urmas Paet and legendary folk singer Virve Köster, alias Kihnu Virve, who was 81 years old at the time.

Brita was also one of two planes used for the record breaking 23 skydiver formation jump, as well as for setting several women-only free-fall formation records.
